Hello Martin,

Is it soo complex to implement some queuing management (even very simple) for outgoing mails for Distribution list ?

Cfr. http://www.hmailserver.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=10629

Thank you

Features are implemented when they have enough votes or if they are easy to implement. I don''t think that is the case with your request.

Just to let you know that my new Sony Ericsson C905 detected that hMailServer supported IMAP Push features and has been happily showing me my email as it comes in ever since.

Nice work :)

It took a while since I last visited this forum (8 beta's) and I was happely supprised to see the "Too many invalid logins" added to the invalid commands setting. It frustrated me to see hundreds of tries to logon as admin knowing I couldn't do much about it. Although they can still reconnect at least it give me the idea that I'm frustrating them back. Only one thing left now is to automatically put the source IP on a blacklist. :wink:

I'm not sure that it will be a good idea.
I explain why :
A bot client connect on your server with it's dynamic ip
Try to logon
Be banned

No problem...but...

The lease of it's ip end.
A valid client get the same ip
The valid client can't connect to your server

That why, it will be a bit dangerous because of dynamic ip.

First fo all, automatic banning is a part of 5.1, not a part of 5.0.

The ban is only temporary. There are 4 billion IP addresses. The risk of a bot accessing your server from the same IP address as a person who has an account on the server is fairly low, and since the ban is temporary I doubt it will be a big problem.

Great Martin! A temporary ban is nice to begin with...

btw, if a valid client got the address thats be used by a bot before I think that client should choose a new provider. His IP will be blacklisted on other blacklists anyway ;)

I dont see this as much of a problem, you only need to set the blacklist time for a few mins to make it all to hard for the person trying to hack in (easier pickings elsewhere).

Plus I would guess there would be some sort of time frame between the time the IP is leased to the hacker and the time it is released to a new client. So all should be well.
